Era(s): Modern



Number 4 in the Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep novels by John Burdett.He is summoned to investigate the most shocking murder of his career. Solving it could mean a promotion but, still reeling from a personal tragedy, Sonchai is more interested in Tietsin, an exiled Tibetan lama living in Kathmandu.

But there are obstacles in Sonchai’s path to enlightenment. Police Colonel Vikorn and Army General Zinna are at war again for control over Bangkok’s network of illegal enterprises – and Tietsin has forty million dollars’ worth of heroin for sale.

With his life in increasing danger, Sonchai is put to the extreme test in John Burdett’s most inventive, darkly comic and wickedly entertaining novel yet.

Lead Review

A well crafted thriller, following that other novels in the series focussing on Thai customs and lores, and a superb feel for Bangkok, this is one not to be missed.
